Women’s Enterprise Scotland (WES) is a not-for-profit, research-led Community Interest Company which aims to create an environment where more women can start up in business and thrive. WES focuses on the economic contribution from women-owned businesses and co-authored the Strategic Framework and Action Plan on Women’s Enterprise along with the Scottish Government. Access to Finance is a core theme of the Strategic Framework. Women-owned businesses currently contribute £5bn GVA to the economy and if women started up in business at the same rate as men, the Scottish economy could be boosted by additional £7.6bn. Supporting women-owned businesses to grow helps to build a diverse business landscape where innovation can flourish.
